LOGAN, Utah â€” Growing up in Bingham County provided Neil Abercrombie with much of the understanding of his new job at Utah State University.
In December USU President Stan Albrecht named Abercrombie as director of government relations.
As such he will help USU garner state and federal funding for key academic programs and research projects.
"A lot of our programs and research have direct relevance to Bingham County," Abercrombie noted in a telephone interview last week. "One of our primary focuses this legislative session is to get funding to start a doctoral veterinary program."
